Thermaltake’s cases are usually quite flashy, but its power supplies have been traditionally pretty standard black boxes. There are a few which break this mold, and the Evo Blue series is one of them. ThinkComputers got its hands on the 75oW version for review. The Evo Blue features modular cables and color-changing LEDs in addition to great cooling and a more attractive design. The review is here.

The Evo Blue series comes in a black box with a mysteriously colored cloud-like background behind the visage of the device on the front of the box. Most prominently displayed is Thermaltake’s promise of a five year warranty on the Evo Blue, a guarantee well worth it.
The rear of the packaging shows the number of connectors, the ability to change the lighting colors, and many of the other high-quality features which make the Evo Blue stand out among its peers.
The Evo Blue 750W comes with some manuals, a power cable, a rubber vibration dampener, and a bag with the modular power cables.
